Behold I Will Do Something New!
Isaiah 44:3 For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, And floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, And My blessing on your offspring…
In many places in the Bible we see God promising to do a new thing, to make things that are dry and barren flourish, to cause new life where there was only desert. What a merciful and loving heavenly Father watches over us! With what tender care He sees to all our needs! Behold, He says, I will do a new thing! When we are sick and tired of being sick and tired, it is time for a “new thing”. We have wonderful life giving and life changing promises from God that we can take to heart. Like, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28) Do you need rest? Jesus says, just come to Him and you will find rest.
The love that flows to this earth from heaven is incredible. We see that love in the beauty of the sunset at evening, the glorious sunrise that greets many a day, the lovely colors of nature that bless our eyes, the list goes on and on… One day God will make all things new – and as they say – you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!
Revelation 21:1-7 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." And He said to me, "Write, for these words are true and faithful." And He said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.
We don’t have to be content with the same old humdrum life – God will make all things new – now and forever more!
